    I am unable to start icescrum after all configuration and setup

    This is the error message i get when i tried to start icesrum in tomcat-admin manager

    FAIL - Application at context path /icescrum could not be started

    This is from icescrum.log, it clearly says to “please check directory & user permission”. But I’m unable to figure it out.

    I am installing in Ubuntu 14.04 with Tomcat 7 and Java 7 following the guide –

    The documentation indicates how to configure the iceScrum base directory:

    icescrum.baseDir = "/icescrum"
    /* Use a custom directory where Tomcat has write rights
    (not webapps!!). Path must use '/' (forward slash) */

    Here, it seems that you have chosen /usr/share/tomcat7/icescrum/ so the user who starts Tomcat (often a user named tomcat, or you own user) must have the write permissions on this directory so iceScrum can create the files it needs to run properly.
